Hamil­ton tops poll of F1 bosses

The Herald (South Africa) - - SPORT -

FOR­MULA One team bosses have voted Lewis Hamil­ton as the sport’s top driver for the fourth year in a row, but Mercedes team­mate Valt­teri Bot­tas slipped to 10th place in the rank­ings.

The poll, pub­lished by mo­tor­sport.com yes­ter­day, put four time world cham­pion Hamil­ton far ahead of clos­est ri­val Max Ver­stap­pen.

Bot­tas, win­ner of three races this year af­ter join­ing as now-re­tired 2016 world cham­pion Nico Ros­berg’s re­place­ment, was listed in 10th place af­ter bosses awarded points ac­cord­ing to the reg­u­lar F1 scor­ing sys­tem.

That rep­re­sented a drop of one place on where Bot­tas had been with Wil­liams last year.

Hamil­ton scored 233 out of a max­i­mum 250.
